"California Blues" as written by and Forest Richard Betts....
Sittin' up here in a big house
LA goes on far as I can see
got an old time feelin'
somewhere down the line is calling me
been going' through the pages of my mind
wonder what I think I'm gonna find
it don't matter anyway
tomorrow I'll be leavin' you, LA.

California Blues, I know you well
what the hell, you're nothin' new to me
California Blues, you can never tell
could be I loved her more than she could see

Now, I walked in here grinnin'
I ain't winnin' but I'm leavin' like I came
I gambled with the love she gave
and like a fool I did not know the game
but the closest thing to winning must be losin'
and now and then it gets so damned confusin'
but it don't matter anyway
tomorrow I'll be leavin' you, LA

California Blues, I know you well
what the hell, you're nothin' new to me
California Blues, you can never tell
could be I loved her more than she could see
could be I wasn't what she wanted me to be
